Tolkien tourism

Tolkien tourism
Despite the astonishing success of the books and films about the Lord of the rings, when you first hear about this specific kind of tourism, first don’t know what to think. Of course, the Lord of the rings is a cultural and a pop phenomenon and he has millions of fans and fans around the world, but it is quite difficult to imagine that he was the cause of travel and tourism. Tolkien tourism essentially consists in two things: on the one hand, devoted and fanatical fans of the series visit the fictional “planet” Lord of the rings, and, on the other hand, they visit every important place mentioned in the movies or books. New Zealand is the most important country for the tourism, because it has become the main place of filming of this series on choosing Peter Jackson (Peter Jackson). Two important places of visit for the fanatical fans of the series in Britain are Oxford and Birmingham, where Tolkien-the tourists can contact the Tolkien society and enjoy anything from artifacts to art and from libraries to pubs – all of anything, provided that it is in any way connected with Tolkien.

Holy places for pilgrims

Holy places for pilgrimsThe modern word “pilgrim” comes from the old “pulmonic”, which, in turn, is derived from the Latin palmarius (“man, holding a palm branch”). So originally named faithful participants of the procession in the Holy Land. Those who wanted to meet in Jerusalem Bright Resurrection of Christ, came ahead of time to spend in the Holy City and the entire Holy week. And since Holy week precedes the feast of the Entry of Christ into Jerusalem (otherwise this holiday is also called the Week of palm Sunday, or in the Russian Orthodox tradition – palm Sunday), and the main event of the day was the procession to the walls of Jerusalem, the pilgrims who took part in this procession, was carrying palm branches. The same branches almost two thousand years ago met Christ the inhabitants of Jerusalem. As a rule, in addition to various relics, they took home as a souvenir and these palm branches.
